PLATTSMOUTH — Mayor Paul Lambert said that he's glad the recall effort against him is over.
“We don’t need issues to divide the city,” he said following the City Council meeting Monday. “We have important issues to concentrate our time and effort, such as getting both (water) plants in operation. I thank the citizens for seeing that and the effort to keep Plattsmouth moving in a positive direction.”

Lambert was the target of a recall, in part because of the city’s removal of gravestone decorations and mementos earlier this year that brought out angry citizens to a council meeting. Poor communication between the city and the residents was another concern, according to recall supporters.
They needed to gather 538 signatures to force a special election, but received fewer than 150, Cass County Election officials confirmed.
